get mommy this and that

May 31, 2021

Me: Mariam, could you get Mommy some water please?

Forth time I’m asking her to get me something today teehee. Water, charger, phone charging in the room… it’s the right of a mom, really. After all that giving birth drama and sleepless nights….

Mariam (getting up and grumbling): Why do I always have to get stuff for you?

Me (calling out to her back): Maybe because I’m your mom and I carried you for nine months and I never complained.

Fadza (looks at me, raises eyebrows): Never complained?

Me (whispering): Shhhh, she doesn’t have to know.

Why must husbands remember EVERYTHING?
